  1. Large Breast Form Sale!

    Posted on

    Big breast form sale

    Oh yes, oh yes!

    Do you love a sale? Of course you do...and I love giving you one.  Here, for a limited time, is a sale on my large voluptuous breast forms.  It's a great time for you to grab that bigger pair you've longed for, treat yourself to an early Christmas present or give subtle hits for a love one to treat you.

    I will be gradually adding these silicone superstars to the sale page over the next week, and it will be the breast forms in the bigger sizes of 600g, 700g, 800g, 900g and 1000g.

    I'm here to help if you'd like to talk through sizing as always.

  2. New Products - Breast Lifting Boob Tape & Rambunctious Rabbits!

    Posted on

    I've got two new products heading your way!

    The first, my Boob Bolstering Breast Lift Tape, is now on the site and I'm really excited about it.  

    Breast Boosting Boob Lift Tape

    There are quite a few occasions with wedding dresses, low-cut tops and plunge bras, where there just isn't enough support for your breasts, let alone one of my lovely breast enhancers.  This can be a big problem and a real confidence shaker for you. 

    I've pondered this for a while, and alongside the adhesive techies at my tape factory, we've developed this magnificent tape. It is a stretchy fabric tape with spandex that can support, hold, lift and shape, and best of all, be used over an enhancer.  It's just finished it's manufacturing run and arrived ready for you, so I've popped it on the site, but I will be doing a little explainer video and getting some images done so that you can see just how it can work with my breast enhancers.

     

    The possibilities it offers for all those hard to work with outfits are very exciting.  It will be able to lift your breasts, with one layer, whilst also supporting the enhancer to boost you further. If you add a dress over the top with some support for the enhancer to push against, even if plunge etc, then you will be able to get fabulous results.  It will also enable so many more breast enhancer options for your strapless bras, which can struggle with the extra weight without shoulder straps to help out. If we add the support of the tape over the top, with a tailored taping to stay hidden under the dress or top, you will be able to rock much heavier breast boosting styles for those big events and nights out.

    I wasn't done there though...

    The second new product is my new Rambunctious Rabbits breast lifting and nipple covering rabbit ears! Use them however you need...as your racy rabbit breast lifters, reliable rabbit nipple covers, or refuse to limit yourself and use them as both!

    Rabbits Collage

    Shaped to help cover erect nipples and give lift and shape, they are fabulous for bikinis by the beach, lightweight tops, tight dresses and can also be used with my boob tape for the ultimate in shaping!  I'll be getting them written up and added to my store asap.

    I did, I really did!  I even made a video...

  4. New Breast Form Stocks

    Posted on

    I've been running low of breast forms, especially in the 500g sizes, as COVID has caused some real challenges in the factory, but we're nearly there. Hurrah!

    I hope that they will be with me in the week of 13th of July, subject to how quickly the delivery companies are working now.  I've found that to be hit-and-miss during the lockdown, but hopefully with the easing things have improved.  I shall get them all unboxed and checked over so they can go on my site as soon as I can. 

    I shall be restocking my normal sizes that are on the site, and adding the triangle shape in a 700g size for you (approximately a 38DD/40D/42C/44B/46A.  These will be a great addition to those of you with bigger size bands who do not have a flat chest. Many of you find that the concave back of the triangle breast form allows them to sit and mould perfectly with your chest, whatever your shape.  The 700g triangle will allow you to go up a cup size from the 600g pair in one simple swoop!

  5. GDPR Update

    Posted on

    gdpr

     

    As the GDPR laws have been in effect now for 2 years, so I just wanted to give you an update as to how I handle your data now that I've settled into the routine.

    1 Heart  Customer List Data:

    After deliberately deleting my customer email list back then, I have had a lovely response with people choosing to opt-in.  I don't email my customers unless I have something to say, so the last two were an end of 2019 email with new product news, links to my new guides etc, and then a COVID 19 email wishing you all well. 

    The email address list is managed by Mail Chimp, who store your data for me.  I only keep your first name, surname and email address on their database if you have opted in. 

    2 Heart  Security Software:

    I continue to use F-Secure to protect your data when I am editing things, for example, getting your order ready.  I have this all all of my devices.

    3 Heart Downloading Your Data For My Accounts:

    When I download my sales for my accounts, I download them into an excel file. The first thing I do I to delete all the columns with your name, address, phone number and email address.  I then save the file, so the only data stored on my computer is the sale itself and not any of your personal data.

    4 Heart The Software I Use:

    I use the same software to host my website and provide the checkout, Create.  They are fully GDPR compliant and SSL secure.  

    I now use some software called Angel Books to help with my accounting.  This software accesses your data to import the sale.  The software itself runs on their servers rather than my computer, and uses their encryption technology

    Angel Books uses HTTPS (secure HTTP) to encrypt all data from our servers to your browser. The servers are located in a secure data centre in Gloucester and have 24/7 security.

    My payment providers World Pay and Paypal process your payments on their servers directly, and I do not have access to your card details at any point.

    If you ever have any query about your data, just send me an email and I'll be happy to help.

  6. My COVID-19 Email to customers

    Posted on

    *|MC:SUBJECT|*


     
    I Can Help - With My Store Or Simply Chatting If Lonely.

    These are certainly unusual and for many people tough times, but I hope you are all safely embedded at home and all your loved ones are safe too. 

    Things that I normally help you with have gone out the window.  Weddings and parties have been canceled, going for a lovely meal/date night/night out with friends is on hold, but let's try and remember (especially when going stir crazy), it's not forever! 

    I'm here, with a little extra time than usual, so if you'd like to talk through immediate or future needs, just get in touch. Whether it be a postponed event that you are getting ready for, a bra or dress that never quite fitted, thoughts about a different shape breast form that might work for you or wondering about trying adhesives and the new shapes they come in. I'm here if you'd like to talk anything through and see what I can do to help. If you have any friends that are upset about a canceled event, please do forward it on, as just continuing to plan can help with mental well-being and feelings of normality.

     
    But also:

    If you are feeling mentally low about work, life or missing human contact.  Just send me an email :) 
    I'm a tiny business, who probably won't benefit from the government schemes much, so I'm feeling the strain too. I think I'm naturally quite realistic and pragmatic rather than pessimistic, but I still have had wobbles with all the uncertainty. I'm here if you want to talk through your emotional wobbles.  No judgment, my best listening skills, advice only if you'd like it and as always, full discretion.

    Sending you all healthy vibes.


    P.S.  Why can't pirates learn the alphabet?
    ...
    Because they spend years at C!

  7. Covid-19 - Coronavirus - My Plans and Precautions

    Posted on

    I just wanted to give you an update on my situation and stance with regard to the outbreak.

    • I am on immune system supressing medication, so I take things very seriously. I follow hygiene rules carefully, and those around me do too. Your parcel will be packaged with clean fresh hands etc!
    • I work from home and this should hopefully keep me safe and enable me to continue to run my store without any problems, getting your lovely items to you as needed.
    • There may be delay in the postal service at this time, but hopefully this won't be too bad.  
    • If someone in my household goes into self-isolation, I shall shut my store from posting as I work from home where they will now be, and could therefore be at risk.    My partner works for a specialist on infectious diseases, who is advising the government at present, and I am aware we know little about the virus yet.  It should not last long enough to reach you on one of my parcels if I was infected, but in order to protect the postal service and you, I will stop posting in case.  I don't want to risk it for the sake of 2 weeks.  
    • If this happens, I will pop banners over my site, notify on Facebook etc.  

    I hope you all stay healthy during this.  Please please wash your hands well regularly and for longer, don't get too close to people in public if you can avoid it and stay away from super crowded places when you can.

    As a side note, I suffer terribly from dry hands that crack and bleed ordinarily.  I have found bar soap to be so much better for them and to have virtually stopped it.  If you find your hands getting dry with the extra washing using liquid soap, make a swap to bar soap and you should find it much better. 

    Take care everyone

  8. Happy 2020! Goal Setting Time.

    Posted on

    Happy New Year!

    I hope you had a lovely festive time and you still have some teeth left (mine are just hanging in there, with just some Matchmakers boxes to go). I made a 3-month planner for my life last year that I use to try and keep track, take stock, and move forward with the things I want to achieve. I just had the crazy thought that it might be a good idea if I share it for once! I have an accountability page, but I just give it to my partner, so here I am sharing it with the world this time. LET'S DO THIS JO.

     

    goals-2691265_640

     

     

    So, I have 3 personal and 3 work goals for every 3 months that I chip away at. This time they are:

    Work Goals

    1. Get my stock software sorted. I started with a new software last year called Angel Books and I am still struggling to get it to work for me. I am going to get that really sorted one way or another, as this will help you guys with my stock levels and manufacturing of products.

    2. I will sort out some advertising. I find this really hard to do, as I am so limited with time as a one-woman shop. I'm going to work on a plan for this so that I can keep the stock turning over and develop new products when needed.

    3. I'm going to get my discount code scheme going. I think I have found a way to offer loyal customers codes for discounts, so I am going to find a way to integrate that to my store/newsletter. If you would like to hear about that when they come out, make sure you are signed up to my newsletter at the bottom of my home page. My goal should probably be to write 2 more newsletters, as I only managed 1 last year, but I'm sure I'll send one out when I get the codes going.

    Personal Goals

    1. Build new storage in my wardrobe. Quite frankly it is shocking in there, I have to shove the door shut and therefore could do with a better storage system. Power tools here I come.

    2. Learn to say no. I'm a people pleaser and this first 3 months of the year I am going to start with the retraining of my brain to keep that in check.

    3. Build my personal chronic disease health workbook, to help me when my health is going off-kilter and I need support/positivity/a reminder that I'm only human.

    If you want to be accountable to someone with your goals, feel free to email me in complete confidence. Warning though, I will check in on you!

  9. Sale Breast Forms!

    Posted on

    With the arrival of my new breast forms, I need to make space for them, which means sale time!

    I have put on sale the last few pairs of my older versions of my styles, which you can see here:

    I also have some pairs that are not up to my high standards, with various issues such as cosmetic blemishing, and I will be adding those over the next week to my bargain category here:
